and their affairs, than would be judicious in regard to 
any in private life, from whom only a part of later 
generations had sprung. 

The hulk of the facts connected with those early 
generations lias been, by careful and patient examina- 
tion, culled from ancient records, wills, deeds and 
other old writings, to which I have had access. Some 
of the incident- relating to them may he regarded as 

trivial in themselves, hut where they WOUld serve to 

exhibit the character, or make known the habits, of 
the person or persons of whom they were related, they 

have not heen rejected. 

Much <>f the knowledge relating to the families in 
the nineteenth century ha- heen gained by personal 
interviews, or by correspondence by mail with well- 
informed gentlemen and ladies of the Tuck families. 
To all who have in any way afforded aid or encourage* 
ment, I tender m\ thanks. 

I do not wish to conceal the fad, that the prepara- 
tion of this work ha- been so much in accordance with 
my taste and fondness for genealogical and antiqua- 
rian research, that the labor has heen, in a large 
degree, an actual pleasure. Still, the work might not 
have heen engaged in. had I not heen persuaded that 
the material previously collected, and other material 
still attainable, would, if I should neglect to use it, be 
to a great extent beyond the reach of any person who 
should hereafter attempt such a work ; and I will add.

this number La my friend Amos Tuck, of Exeter, X. 1 1., 
from whom, in the summer of ISTii. I received an in- 
teresting letter, giving an account <>f lfi^ visil and 
some of the impressions he received. 

Presuming thai the letter will be of interest to 
others as well as myself, I shall introduce it, nearly 
entire, as follow-: 

Exeter, \. II., July 25, 1S72. 

Dear Sib : 

As I know y.ni to be deeply interested in the 
antiquities of Hampton, I will give you a brief account of a 
recent experience of my own, which, I trust, will be of some 
interesl to \ ou. 

As you know. I trace my ancestry back to Robert Tuck, one of 
the original settler- of Hampton, in which town were bom all 
my paternal ancestors since: and where all of them, except my 
father, died. Mr. Samuel G. Drake, the antiquary, who also 
traces his ancestry, on the mother's side, to the same Robert 
Tuck, ascertained, some years since, that he emigrated from 
Gorlston, in England, and Mr. Drake visited that town some ten 
years ago. Being recently in England, with a few days at my 
disposal free from business, I concluded to gratify my own wish 
of looking upon the place, which our ancestor called home, and 
looked back to with interest from his long years of residence in 
Hampton. 

Gorlston is on the easterly coast of England, the northernmost 
town in the County of Suffolk, and is a continuous village with 
Yarmouth, the southernmost town on the coast in the County of 
Norfolk. The Yare River runs southerly, parallel to the coast 
from Yarmouth, emptying into the sea at Gorlston, having Great 
Yarmouth between the River and the Sea : and Little Yarmouth 
and Gorlston on the west, the River constituting the harbor for 
600 or 7 00 vessels owned there, with a fine bridge above the 
principal shipping, though the draiv allows vessels to follow the 
navigable stream far up into the country. Yarmouth has about 
30,000 inhabitants, and Gorlston about 4,000. The principal 
business is the mackerel and herring fisheries, carried on here

person of my name now resides in the place, though I heard of 
several in other localities not far off, and one, a minister, of the 
Independent, or Congregational order. The counties of Norfolk 
and Suffolk are spoken of now, as the hot-bed of Puritanism years 
ago, and subsequently : and are now largely Independent The 
people have limited intercourse with foreigners, and the parish 
clerk, in answer to my inquiry whether many people emigrated 
to Aniej'ica. replied that some went, and one man went about 
three years ago whom he knew, lie was primitive in all his 
ideas, and if one of our ancestors should rise from the dead, and 
appear as be was when alive-. I believe be would scarcely better 
represent his period, than did this clerk, pious and good, so many 
generations later. 

I was struck w i til the resemblance of Gorlston and Yarmouth, 
in situation. t<> Hampton. One looks out easterly on the sea. and 
westerlj on marshes, as at Hampton: and you hear the beach 
spoken of as at Hampton, with its public houses, in which sum- 
mer boarders are accommodated. The people live partly by 
fishing and partly by farming, and I cannot doubt that Hampton 
attracted some of the original settlers, partly at least, on account 
of its resemblance to their old home. I did not see any Old 
Hampton names, except Palmer, on the signs of shops at Gorl- 
ston, but I think Robert Tuck was not the only one of the first 
settlers of Hampton who came from that town. 

The fishermen ply their business in larger vessels than at 
Hampton, and go largely to the " Dutch Coast," as they call it, 
90 miles distant. May it not be that familiarity w ith that coast 
acquired by fishermen, led Robinson with his flock first to Hol- 
land? I suggested this to Dr. Palfrey, the historian of New 
England, who regarded it as highly probable. 

I observed, on my return from Yarmouth to London, that for 
generations the people have been damming back the tide-water 
from the marshy land, with very great advantage and succc 
Many thousand acres, once salt marshes, have been converted into 
fertile arable land, and the finest south-down cattle were pasturing 
in large herds upon the richest grass on these meadows. I believe 
it practicable to create immense agricultural wealth in New Eng- 
land by similar defences against the sea, and that at some time 
in the future the work will be done. Still, it should not be under-

The several tracts here described do not include the 
whole of Robert Tuck's interest in the lands of the 
township. When this record was made, only a small 
part of the territory had been disposed of by grant or 
by sale. Several thousand acres were still held in 
common, to be granted, sold or divided, as the free- 
holders and commoners might consider for their in- 
terest. As, however, the just claims of some of the 
commoners were greater than those of others, it was 
necessary to consider and determine their respective 
rights. This matter was settled in 1646, by regarding 
the whole value of the common lands as being divided 
into 147 equal parts, which were called shares, and 
determining to how many shares each of the common- 
ers should be entitled. Robert Tuck was to have 
three shares. 

The house-lot assigned to Robert Tuck, as above 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 7 

described, was. very near the spot selected by the set- 
tlers as the site for their meeting-house, which was 
evidently intended to be the business or social centre 
of the settlement, as for many years it was in fact. „ 

The location of the house-lot may be understood by 
people resident in the town, from the following state- 
ment : — The southeast corner of the lot was a few rods 
westerly from Rand's Hill, so-called, and was nearly 
identical with the southeast corner of the present tri- 
angular tract formerly known as "Squire Leavitt's 
Garden," now owned by heirs of Jabez Towle, de- 
ceased. The southerly side of the lot extended from 
this corner along the road leading from "The Green ' : 
near the Academy towards Hampton Falls, about as 
the fence now stands, to " Ward's lane " near the Rail- 
road crossing. The lot was probably bounded on the 
Avest by this lane; and on the east, as appears from 
the record, by the road from Rand's Hill towards 
North Hampton. 

The dwelling house located near the southeasterly 
corner of the lot between the roads already mentioned 
as leading, one to the Hampton Falls, and the other to 
North Hampton, was conveniently situated for a pub- 
lic house, and was for many years kept as such, it be- 
ing the earliest public house in the town. Such an 
establishment was then known as an ordinary, and no 
person was allowed to keep an ordinary without a 
license from the county court. The form of the license 
was not always the same, nor were the privileges 
granted. Usually, the holder was allowed to sell, by 
retail, to travellers and strangers — not always to towns- 
men — beer, wine and " strong waters " ; but he was 
strictly prohibited from selling to servants and minors. 



8 ROBERT TUCK, OF HAMPTON, N. II. 

He was required to furnish food and lodging for trav- 
ellers, and stabling for horses at reasonable prices ; 
and in Hampton (then a half-shire town) entertain- 
ment for the court and juries, and clients attending 
the court. 

After residing in Hampton fifteen years, or more, 
Goodman Tuck had occasion to visil England on 
business, to be gone a year and perhaps Longer. Such 
was the state of his family, that the keeping of the 
ordinary was necessarily given op during his absence, 
and another person Licensed to carry on the business. 
After his return from England, lie appears to have 
been desirous of re-opening his ordinary, and being 
encouraged by representations made by some of the 
inhabitants of tin- town, he concluded to do so; and 
immediately resumed his former business without 
waiting for the sitting of the court and the renewal of 
his License. 

This course brought him into trouble. Complaint 

having been made to the court, he wa- lined £5 for 
keeping an ordinary without license, though a full 
year was allowed in which to pay the fine. At the 
same court he was licensed to go on with his business. 
Hut he wanted to be released from the fine imposed 
by the court, and to this end petitioned the General 
Court to remit it, on the ground, that though he had 
broken the law, he had clone it through ignorance, 
supposing his former license to be still in force. The 
court remitted £3 of the fine, but required the balance 
to be paid. Ever afterward till the close of life the 
ordinary was kept by him. 

From his occupation as a seller of wine, Goodman 
Tuck was appropriately styled vintner, and we find

By referring to the decree of the county courl made 
in April, 1<>Im. for the distribution of E&oberl Tuck's 
estate among his heirs, as given on a former page, it 
will appear thai the whole income of the estate dur- 
ing the aatural life of his widow was to inure to her 
ben* fii : and at her decease, distribution was to be 
made of what remained of the estate. Thai time had 
now come: the widow was dead; what remained of 
her late husband's estate had been ascertained ; his 
two daughters with their husbands were still living 
and were near at hand, and his grandson, John Tuek, 
had lately attained his majority, and his lawsuit agaihsl 
his grandfather's estate had recently been decided and 
settled. 

Robert Tuck, however, one of the heir-, the son 
who had not accompanied his parent- in their emigra- 
tion, -till resided in England, and, probably, never 
came t<> America. Hut at this time he appeared, 1>\ 
his son William Tuck, whom he had constituted his 
lawful attorney, with amide authority to make a full 
and final settlement of all claim-, whatever the nature 
of them, that he had in law or equity against the es- 
tate of his lather, the late Robert Tuck, of Hampton, 
deceased.

Mr. Tuck owned a considerable quantity of real

I 






2G ROBERT TUCK, OF HAMPTOX, N. II. 

vat ion of his Land. By trade, however, he was a car- 
penter. How largely he worked al his trade, does not 
appear. He invested capital in building mills, which 
in BOme instances he also operated. Possibly, he 

changed his employment somewhat from the ordinary 
business of a carpenter, working rather as a millwright. 
In some way. certainly, whatever it may have been, 
he became very much interested in building and own- 
ing mills. This fad rests not on tradition alone — the 
town records furnish ample proof. 

At a town meeting held on the 17th of September, 
!<>s(>, the following Note was passed: 

I'pon the motion of John Tuck to the Town, the 'town have 
acted 1>\ vote t>. grant to him Liberty to set up a grist and fulling 
mill upon Nilus River*, and to make convenient Dam or Dams 

for the same, provided he shall not draw down water to daninilie 
any man in their hay time, in any of their meadows that lay helow 
upon that river, upon the penaltic of one hundred pounds; and 
that the said mills he built and finished within two years after the 
date hereof; or otherwise this grant he yoid, and to remain to the 
town as formerly. 

Nilus River (or Brook) has it- principal sources in 
Alder Meadow, a large tract of springy land lying 
partly in Hampton, and partly in North Hampton, 
and runs easterly and southerly till it flows into Mea- 
dow Pond — a considerable body of water a little dis- 
tance back from the seashore. At the time of this 
grant, what is now the bed of the pond was a tract of 
wet land covered with grass and bushes, through 
which the river ran, and passed on into (or through) 
the Spring Marsh, retaining the same name. The 
pond was formed by an inundation of the sea, occa- 
sioned by a remarkably high tide, in February, 1724. 
The outlet of the pond now bears a different name. 



\\l> HIS D \i-wi-. 

M I'm k. baying built a grist-mill, probably found 
the supplj of irater insufficient lor the two mills .it 
the same dam, and thought it beat to build the fulling 
mill farther up the Nilus. II oordingl) asked per- 
mission from tin- town. Mini "ii the 1 1th of Nbvemb* 

hi- request having been considered, the follow- 
ing \ ote \\ .1- passed :

ant 
;\c to the ToWDC ag.v 

The first of these dams (the one authorized in 16$ 
was built near the dividing line between the upland 
and the meadon lying inside of the beach-hfl] (now 
west of the pond). It occupied nearly the same Bite 
the dam «»n which " Leai in'- mill," built about sixty 
doh stands, a few rods above tin >k 

Road," leading to the North l"> h. The other dam, 
mted for a fulling mill in 1689, was 1 1 a mile 

or more farther up the Nilus. The fulling mill built 
there remained many \. pa, At length the mill v 
neglected, the dam went to ruin, and the fall was not 
am utilize<l till 1867, when a new dam was made. 
ami a sh b mill built and operated on the same -*ite, 
a little v f the highway leading from the school- 

house, in District No. 1. to Little River Villa- 
After Mr. Tuek had built his two nulls on separate 
dams, he still found that in some seasons there was an 
inadequate supply of water. The principal sources of 
^silus River, as already mentioned, were in Alder 
low, a large trad ot' Bpringy ground lying be- 



28 ROBERT TUCK, OF HAMPTON, N. II. 

tween the "Twelve Shares" and the road leading from 
Hampton to Rye K four cornerB. w But the water from 
the springs in this meadow had another outlet besides 
the Nilus, running northerly into Little River near 
the (at present) lower Bawmill on that stream. By 
building a dam across this outlet, nearly all the water 

from the meadow would he turned into the Nilus, thus 
increasing considerably the water power at each of the 
mills below. 

There was still another way of enhancing the value 
of one of the mills, the grist-mill which was at some 
distance below the other. About fort} rods north of 
the "Nook" road are several springs — one of them a 

bountiful spring — from which flowed a stream often 

called the "Nook Kuu." the chief source of DoVs 
River, then a tributary of the Nilus, but now an inlet 
to the Meadow Pond. By building an inexpensive 
dam across the outlet of these springs, and digging a 
suitable ditch from some point above the dam to the 
mill pond at the gristmill, the water from the sprin 
might easily be turned into this pond, and thus the 
mill would be increased in value. A request to the 
town for permission to make these improvements was 
considered and acted upon at a meeting of the "free- 
holders and commoners/' Dec. 29, 1729, and the result 
recorded, as follow^: 

Granted unto John Tuck Liberty so far as the Town hath a 
[tight to grant, to turn the springs ncre whare Thomas Sleeper 

dwelt ; and also the springs v' are att Alder-meadow in [into] his 
pond where his Grist mill stands for the tarme [term] of twenty 
years, on condition the said Tuck improve all opportunity of 
Grinding the Town corn for the sixteenth part thereof, and that 
the said John Tuck shall Ingage for to grind three days in a week 
when there is waiter and after y* 20 years above mentioned aie

began to read the Bible through for the thirteenth 
time, but does not remark further in regard to it. 

Mr. Tuck and his wife Bethia united with the 
church on t lie 28tb day of February, 1696-7, about 
seven weeks after their marriage. He was chosen a 
Deacon of the church, July L9, L715, in place ofDea. 
Samuel Dow, deceased, and held the office till death, 
more than twenty-seven year-. 

Dea. Tuck was highly esteemed both for his ability 
and his integrity, and he was often chosen to (ill ini- 
portanl offices in the town. He was a Selectman ten 
years, viz.: in L680, 'S:_\ 'S7, \ss, '!U, '<)H ; L700, '11, 16, 
'17. dul\ 5, 1711. In- was chosen Town Clerk to fill a 
vacancy occasioned by the death of Dea. Samuel 
D<>\\. and was retained in the office till March 1<». 
1730, about fifteen years and eight months. He \\;i- 
twice elected a Deputy to represent the town in the 
Genera] Assembly of the province; yet the time of 
bis actual service as a member was in each case very 
brief. He was first chosen for the assembly begun 
and holden at New Castle on the 16th of September, 
1 <>!)<;. The assembly met at the same place by ad- 
journment <>n the 19th, and in Hampton by proroga- 
tion on the 22nd, and by adjournments on the 23d 
and 24th of the same month. On the last of these 
day- tlie assembly was dissolved by Lt. Gov. Usher, 
alter having been in session only five day-. 

It d<n- not appear that Dea. Tuck was again eho- 
sen to represent the town in the General Assembly at 
any time during the next twenty years. He was a 
member of the assembly whose first meeting' was held 
in Portsmouth on the 13th of May, 1717. The other 
members from Hampton were Col. Joseph Smith and 
Maj. Peter Weare.

It appears that before this there had been a differ- 
ence of opinion, and probably some discussion — not 
to use the harsher term contention — between the gover- 
nor and the lieutenant governor, as to the power of 
the latter, and the manner in which it was to be used 
when the former was in Massachusetts. Gov. Shute 

imed, that after he had published his commission 
in each government, and been qualified by taking the 

the prescribed, he held the power of governing both 
provinces, when he was in either, or, as he averred, 
whenever he was in America ; but when he was out 
of New Hampshire hi> orders were to be carried into 
effect by the lieutenant governor. Lt Gov. Vaughan 



32 ROI5KHT TUCK, OF HAMl'TOX, X. II. 

held that whenever the governor was out of Xew 
Hampshire, the powers of government in this pro- 
vince vested wholly in himself, and that he became 
governor, defacto. 

WTien Gov. Shute learned that his order to the 
lieutenant governor to prorogue the General Assem- 
bly to the second day of October had been disregard- 
ed, he appears to have given notice that the assembly 
would meet on that day, notwithstanding it-- dissolu- 
tion 1>\ Lt. ( iov. Vaughan. At the time appointed, the 
council met, Gov. Shute being present and presiding. 
All the tnembers of the lower house also met, except 
the three from Hampton. These, whatever they may 
have thought of the policy of the lieutenant governor, 
held that, in dissolving the General Assembly he had 
not transcended the power vested in him, and conse- 
quently that the dissolution was B valid and final act. 
Holding such views, they considered themselves as 
no longer representatives of their town, and that they 
could become such only by a new election. These 
views they appear to have made known, in an infor- 
mal way. to those gentlemen with whom they had 
been associated in the assembly. 

The speaker of the house gave notice to the gov- 
ernor and council of the absence of Dea. Tuek and 
his colleagues, and of their refusal to sit as members 
of the house unless there should be a new election in 
all the towns. The house also passed a vote and sent 
it up to the council, requesting the governor to send 
a precept to Hampton for assembly men to be chosen 
instead of Dea. Tuck and his colleagues, who had 
refused to serve. 

Such a precept was accordingly sent to Hampton;

ond time for the term of three years, the length of 
time for which representatives were then chosen. 

Dea, Tu<-k was a well-informed and influential man. 
Il>- is said to have been distinguished for hie exten- 
sive and remarkably accurate geographical know- 
Ledge. He was also noted for his eccentricities. Hav- 
ing inherited, besides the paternal homestead and 
other real estate, the grist-mill on Nllus Brook, built 
\>\ his lather many years before, he was himself the 
miller. The mill was aboul two miles anda half from 
his residence as the road- then were. He owned a 
white horse, which is said to have grown old in his 
service, and which was well known to all the people 
living along the route This horse he was accustomed 
to take with him, day after day, as be wen! to the 
mill, not ordinarily to avoid the fatigue of walk- 
ing, for he Beldom rode, but to be used as a pack- 
horse to carry upon it- back the bags of corn and 
grain that the people wished to Bend to the mill, and 

to take hack the meal to the several owner- on his 
way home. This service was performed gratuitously, 
and was a great accommodation to the people. 

There wen' times, however — not perhaps very fre- 
quent — when he would not thus accommodate, nor 
even deign to notice any one as he passed to his mill. 
When the "odd lit" was on him he seemed oblivious 
of every thing around him. The people perceived it 
almost intuitively, and at such times asked no favors. 
It is a tradition concerning him that women, wishing 
to send a small bag of grain to the mill, were accus- 
tomed to go to their doors and watch his approach, 
being able to tell by his gait whether or not he had a 
" Tuck spell." If he had, they shut their doors with- 
out a word; if not, they easily obtained a favor.

for anger. To show the plan clearly it should l>«-

church to occupy, during the hours of religious ser- 
vice, a pew or seal known a- the deacons 1 Beat, direct- 
ly in front of the pulpit, but much below it. where 

they sal facing the congregation. The plan was for 
Dea. Tuck, whenever lie found the pastor becoming 
ton much excited, to strike hi- -h<>e against the wall 
of the pew in front of him. The -iirnal. when given, 
never failed to produce the effect intended.

Mi-. Tuck, having graduated in 172.'), studied for 
the ministry, but under whose instruction I am no! 
informed. I think, however, I do doI hazard much 
in suggesting thai he was probably guided in his the- 
ological studies by the sound judgment and the wise 
counsels of Rev. Nathaniel Gookin, the talented, 
judicious and beloved pastor of the church in his 
native town, than whom it would have been difficult 
t<» liud a more competent instructor. Under his min- 
istry he had grown uji from early boyhood; of Ins 
church Mr. Tuck's parents were members more than 
a quarter of a century, and his father during many 
\ ears an officer. 

I have noi ascertained how early Mr. Tuck began 
his ministry. In 1729 he was engaged in preaching 
in Chester, X. II., a place then recently settled; and 
on the 10th of June, at a meeting of the proprietors, 
it was Voted : " That Mr. John Tuck, of Hampton, 
is chosen to settle w th y e Inhabitants of Chester in y e 
work of y e Mini-try." It was also voted that "120 
Pounds be liaised for y e support of y e Gospel Minis- 
try by y c Inhabitants and prop" [proprietors] accord- 
ing to their settlement for five years ensuing, and 
then be Raised as the law directs." 

A committee was chosen to communicate the votes 
to Mr. Tuck, and invite him to the work of the min- 
istry in Chester. The committee having performed

small islands, seven or eight in number, lying in the 
Atlantic ocean, ten or twelve miles from 1 lampion 
Beach, in a direction a little north of east. They con- 
sist mainly of rock, covered in many places with a 
thin coat of earth, though there is but little soil fit for 
cultivation. These islands were discovered in 161 1 
by Capt John Smith, who named them :t Smith's 
Isles," in honor of himself; but that name was not 
long retained, and at an early date they began to be 
called as they now are, Esles oi Shoals, or, in a fami- 
lial- way, "The Shoals." 

When discovered these islands had a very inhos- 
pitable appearance, and they would probably have 
long remained uninhabited, had it not been for the 
facilities that they afforded for carrying on success- 
fully the fishing business. These advantages were 

readily seen, and they attracted settlers at a mty 
early period j and for more than a century the islands 
had a population of from three hundred to six hun- 
dred people. A meeting-house i- said to have been 
built on Hog Island,* the largest of the group, as early 
as 1641. A meeting-house was built on Star Island 
early in the eighteenth century. The latter island, 
together with White Island, Londoners, and a part 
of Cedar Island, lies in Xew r Hampshire, and was in- 
corporated as a town, December 24, 1715. 

Several men had from time to time performed min- 
isterial labor on these islands, but no one of them 
had been a pastor of the church before the year 1732. 
In the summer of that year, Mr. John Tuck, having 
received and accepted a call, was on the 26th of July 

* Now called Applcdore.

• This child, Joseph T. Lake. Jr., at his birth was a small, puny infant, weighing 
only m\ and three-fourths pounds. Be grew very rapidly, when one year old he 
was remarkable tor sfse and strength, and tor Intellectual development. At Ave years 
of age be weighed one hundred and thirty pounds, bis mind being as mature as that 
of a child of twice his years. He was very fond of reading, and had a remarkable 
memory. 

His parents had many applications from persons who wished to travel with him 
for the pnrpose of exhibiting him. To snch an arrangement they did not consent 
Sometimes, however, they took him to some fair tor two or three days. He very 
much enjoyed travelling, and was very fond of company. As he grew older he 
became an object of attraction, people cuming from a considerable distance t" Bee him. 

He continued to increase in size and strength, and at the age of twelve yam and 
ten months he weighed three hundred and eighty-live pound — being tall and well 
proportioned, a tine scholar, and a very interesting boy. At that time he went to 
Mi I ford, in Hillsborough County, to attend a County Fair. After an absence of 
only a few days, he returned home, sick with typhoid fever, and died after a sickness 
of four days. 

Strong as were his attachments to all his friends, he was perfectly reconciled to 
die, and passed away as calmly as any person of mature years. He was very remark- 
able in many respects, having a pleasant and happy disposition, and being also a very 
conscientious child.

their farm till lie was twenty-one years <>1<1. having 
received Buch education a- could be gained from the 
common schools <>f a new town, and an attendance 
for tw<> terms ;it the Academy in Farmington, Me. 
Soon after attaining Ids majority, lie left bis early 

home to sect his fortune in another State. He went 

to Lowell, Ma--., in L828, only four years after its 
incorporation as a distind town, when the whole num- 
ber of its inhabitants did not probably exceed four 
thousand. During hi- first year there he was em- 
ployed by Mi - . S. A. Cobum, in hi- hotel. lie then 
spent a year in our of the factories, after which he 

was in trade till 1838; then went into the express 
business, which proved a BUCCesS, and he continued in 

tin- business seventeen years, bul -old out hi- interest 
in L855. 

Since 1865 Mr. Tuck ha- been acting a- a broker, 
doing business in Boston, while lie retained his resi- 
dence in Lowell. He is -till a broker, yet he finds 
time to attend to various other matters in which he 
has an interest. For fifteen year- he ha- been presi- 
dent of the Old Lowell National Hank ; and the pros- 
perous condition of that institution evinces judicious 
management on the part of it> managers. Mr. Tuck 
at the same time ha- been, and still is, one of the 
directors of the Traders' and Mechanics' Insurance 
Company, and also of the Lowell <& Lawrence Kail- 
road. 

To fill these offices well, to attend to his business 
in Boston as a broker, and return, requiring daily 
fifty miles travel by railroad or more, and to take pro- 
per care of his own private business, necessitates that 
Mr. Tuck should be not only a very busy, but also a 
very methodical man.

twenty-six miles apart. The name of the business men to whom 
he is known, here and there, would fill a good sized directory ; 
and among them all, his word is as good as his bond, and his bond

.1 Warren Tuck, son of Jeremiah Tuck, of Kn- 

iii, .iu<l Uuth (AV Iman) Tuck, of Candia, 

V H., was born August 7. 1823, in Payette, M 
which place his parents had emigrated in early life. 

II - youth was pa— < d in the uMial manner upon 
his father's farm, in laborious occupation, with such 
ad nnlv of education as arc incident to the 

England farmers. But the aspiration 
something higher and betti r, which has in 

my instances influenced the children of intelligent 
paren ring their families in obscure localities, n 

lv awakened in young Warren, and at th« of 

d he began t«> leave his home in winter for the 
advantage of attending a high school in a neighbor- 
ing village. l>v constant and untiring diligence and 
industry, he in this manner Boon qualified himself to 
become a teacher, and for several years taught winter 
schools, spending the summers in work on his father's 
farm. 

His father sympathized with him in hi- noble pur- 
pose and in the efforts he was making - to accomplish 

but yet was unable to do for him much more than

leave him at liberty to exercise his own powers as besl 
he might, without parental restraint. The son attended 

school for some time, and as constantly as his self- 
acquired means would enable him, at the Maine Wes- 
lcvan Seminary at Keadfield, Me., until, alter many 
struggles, he had become fitted for college. 

The death of a brother, and unavoidable delay con- 
sequent thereupon, compelled him to abandon the 
cherished hope of a collegiate education, and he was 
induced to accept a flattering situation m the public 
schools of Hallowell, Maine. Undecided as to his 
ultimate vocation in life, he devoted his leisure hours 
for some time to the study of law. and also to the 
study of medicine ; finally settling down, however, 
into the purpose of following the occupation of a 
teacher. He made a special study of elocution, and 
possessed rare ability in transferring to his pupils the 
enthusiasm which he himself lilt in this branch of 
culture, and the effect of his instruction and example 
in this regard ha- been manifest in eloquent words 
spoken from pulpit, bar and platform. 

In 1850 Mr. Tuck was appointed usher in the 
Washington School, Roxbury, Mass. lie was mar- 
ried at Boston, May 27, 1851, to Phronia S. Nbrris, 
of Mount Vernon, Me. lie took high rank a- a 
teacher, and years after was several times called to 
serve upon the school board of Roxbury. His suc- 
cess in Massachusetts led to his being invited to be- 
come Principal of the Model School of Xew Britain 
in connection with the Normal School of Connecticut. 
After four years of successful service in New Britain, 
he was induced to become connected with the Boston 
schools for one year, and then concluded to accept an

Be Brat became connected with the T Safe and

not think a liberal education a necessity, and would

and Kensington. After leaving Phillips Academy, 
he taught school, among other places, in Rowley, 
Mass. He then studied medicine with Dr. George 
Ilayward, of Boston, and graduated at the Harvard 
Medical School, in 1834, passing the last year as 
house-pupil at the Massachusetts Genera] Hospital, in 
Boston. 

On receiving his medical degree (1834), he settled 
in Barnstable, a town on Gape God, Massachusetts, 
where he quickly gained an extensive practice, and 
was held in the highest esteem as a physician and a 

man by the entire community in which he lived. Dr. 
Tuck was for several years in charge of the U. S. 
Marine Hospital, at Hyannis. He was a member of 

the Massachusetts Medical Society, having joined it 

in L837j and of the Barnstable District Medical So- 
ciety, he was President. 

In the Spring of 1845, his health failed him from 
over-work in his profession, and he went to visit his 
friends in Kensington, \. II. lie failed rapidly, and 
died there in a few week-, of Blight's disease, June

DEATH OF DR. HENRY TUCK.* 

Impressed most deeply with the universal sadness that beclouds 
our village and hangs heavily at its every heart, we feel sensibly 
our inability to discharge appropriately our solemn duty in record- 
ing the death of our fellow citizen and friend — Dr. Henry Tuck — 
who died on Tuesday night, the 24th ult., at his father's residence 
in Kensington, X. II., at the age of thirty-seven years. His re-

After leaving the common schools of his native town, 
he was for a time a student in Hampton Academy, a 
few miles from his home, and at the Academy at 
AVest Brattleborough. \'t. His studies preparatory 
for college were, however, pursued chiefly in Phillips 
Academy, Andover, Mass. He entered the freshmen 
class at Amherst College in 183G, and graduated with 
his class in 1840. 

After leaving college he was engaged for a while 
in teaching, as the principal of the Academy in West 
Brattleborough, where lie had once been a pupil. lie 
soon relinquished this position for the purpose of pre- 
paring himself for the ministry — pursuing his theo- 
logical studies at the seminary in Andover, Mass .

OBITUARY.* 
Mrs. Catharine P. Tuck, wife of Hon. Amos Tuck, whose 
death on the 10th instant was announced last week, was the 
daughter of John Townsend, Esq., late of Salisbury, N. H. 
She was born on the 20th of January, 1815, was married to Mr. 
Tuck and came to Exeter to reside in 1847. Except when her 
husband's official engagements called him to Washington and else- 
where, she has lived among us and become generally known 
to the people. While her natural reserve did not allow many 
intimate acquaintances, those to whom she did open her heart, 
found in her an entirely loyal and loving friend. Gifted with a 
clear, active mind, and with great decision of character, she was 
fitted to exert a commanding influence. To strength of charac- 
ter she added superior intelligence. The unusual facilities she

AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 101 

enjoyed after her marriage, for travel at home and abroad, and her 
cultivated taste for literature, gave her a large store of knowledge, 
useful and beautiful, which both enriched her own life and in- 
creased her ability to confer happiness on others. 

She was an ardent admirer of beauty, whether in nature, art, 
music or human character, and her world had become peopled 
with attractions for her cultured and appreciative mind. Nor was 
she indifferent to matters of public concern. Upon all subjects 
that have stirred the popular conscience or convulsed the country 
within the past few years, she had intelligent and deep convic- 
tions, and was ever ready on proper occasions to express her opin- 
ions. At the same time she did not lose her interest in matters 
specially affecting the welfare and happiness of the town, and 
of those with whom she was closely associated. Here at home 
her vivacious spirit and cordial ways and quickening impulses 
were a contribution to society, which cannot fail to be greatly 
missed by her large circle of friends and acquaintances. Of her 
charming home she was the acknowledged queen, while she 
easily took the place of waiting and watching when any member 
of the household needed her attention. Never has the writer seen 
wifely fidelity and devotion exceed hers on the occasion of her 
husband's late, long illness. Great as her joy was at his recovery, 
it was the time for her overtaxed strength to yield. 

For months she had secretly combated an internal disease, the 
first symptoms of which appeared on last Thanksgiving day. Its 
progress has been steady and relentless from the first, yet her 
hopefulness was so great that she did not become seriously alarm- 
ed for herself till her husband was out of dan ere r. Then she did 
not abandon hope till the best medical, skill was baffled. 

It would not be true to say that she easily let go of a world 
which had so many charms for her. She clung eagerly to earth and 
earthly loves, but as she saw no door but that of a suffering ill- 
ness and death opening before her, she looked prayerfully and 
earnestly toward her Father's home above for some tokens of his 
approving love. These came to her, she thought, in manifold 
ways : not least in the loving, sympathizing hearts which sur- 
rounded her sick bed, and which seemed to reflect to her God's 
own heart of tender compassion and love. Although the mys- 
terious mission and office of Christ had never been clear to her 
mind, while she had ever bowed in reverent faith before him, yet 



L02 ROitEirr tuck, of Hampton, n. ii. 

her later agony seemed to convey her thoughts to that Saviour 
and his dying sufferings, with a personal interest, if not with a 
sense of fellowship. Shortly before her death, she said : " J know- 
that my Father hath in store for me far better mansions than any 
I have had here," and in this hope, with praying hearts around 
her, she passed away on the evening of the twenty-ninth annivrr- 

s;n\ >.f her marriage. 

On the afternoon of Friday following she was laid to rest in the 
family burial-place, the Betting sun and the autumn foliage giving 

unusual impreS8ivene8S to the scene. 

" Tbey arc not lost they are within the door

With angels bright) ami loved ones gone lid'ure, 
In thi ir Redeemer's pret ermore. 

Ami God bimseli their Lord, their Judge, their King."

Amos Tuck, as Mated in the body of the genealo* 
. was born in Parsonsfield, Me., on the 2d day of 
August, L810, being the son of John and Betsey 
(Towle) Tuck, both Datives of Hampton, as likewise 
stated in tin- genealogy. John Tuck with his wife 
removed from Hampton to Parsonsfield, in March, 
ISO", carrying with them their two oldest children, 
Jonathan and Sarah, born in Hampton. His brothers, 
Josiah and Samuel, with their widowed mother, had 
preceded him in settling in Parsonsfield, and the 
moving cause of the settlement of Samuel ami John 
in thai town, was the fact thai Josiah had -pent their 
patrimony ;i- well as his own, and the only thing they 
could gel in return was land enough to make two 
moderate sized farms in that then comparatively un- 
settled region. Josiah soon left Parsonsfield, hut the 
two younger brothers remained on their farms for life, 
improving them very much, each raising families, one 
of live and the other of six children, John dying in

sion in 1 . having previously opened an office for 

i short time in Hampton, and in December, L838,

In 1842 Mr. Tuck was representative in the New

revision of the statutes enacted that year. II< was a 
democrat in politics, but in 1844 he separated from 
the party with others, <>n the pro-slavery measure of 
the annexation of I is, and in 1846 was nominated 

by the Independent Democrats lor a member of Con-

men in the national House of Representatives. These 
men were Joshua R. Giddings of Ohio, \)\\ John (•. 
Palfrey of Massachusetts, and Amos Tuck of New 
Hampshire. Hon. John P. Hale, of New Hampshire, 
was the only anti-slavery senator in the higher branch 
of ( longres 

The declaration of principles on which the Inde- 
pendents and the Whigs of New Hampshire united 
in L846 17, and their union of action, was the Bret 
movement towards the formation of the great Repub- 
lican party, which was eventually organized in Phila- 
delphia in 1856, which nominated Mr. Lincoln at Chi- 
cago in I860, carried the country in the election of 
that year, and eventually saved the government in 
the great struggle from L861 to L865. 

Mr. Tuck was a member of the committee at the 
convention in Philadelphia, which gave the name of* 
Republican t<» the new party, and which reported the 
platform of declared principles, a portion of which 
was drawn up by himself, on which the organization 
rallied, lit- was Likewise a member of the Chicago 
Convention in 1860, and advocated from the first the 
nomination of Mr. Lincoln, whom lie had previously 
known in Congress; and again as member of the 
Platform Committee at that convention, aided in the 
formation of the declaration of principles on which 
the great party rallied and were victorious in the 
election of* Mr. Lincoln. 

Mr. Tuck served three terms in Congro-. closing 
his service upon the inauguration of President Pierce 
in 1853, when New Hampshire had become a demo- 
cratic state, and the congressional districts had be- 
come so arranged that no man of the opposition could

seventeen he became a pupil at the Academy at 
Hampton, then in charge of his brother Amos Tuck,

judicious exercise, he succeeded in combating- disease, 
and he resided there more than ten years. He then

His health has always been frail, yet he illustrates 
the advantage resulting from good judgment, constant

Mr. Tack has always and the confidence of the \

JOSEPH 1 1 i:\KY 7 (Samuel Jones, 9 John? John* 
John? Edward* Robert), born March 12, L812, being 
the youngest son of his parents thai lived to manhood; 
never married. His name ie here introduced in order 
i(» give some account (however incomplete) of his life 
and iris labors. 

Joseph Henry Tuck, boh of Samuel Jones Tuck 
and Juditn (Gardner) Tuck, was horn in Dorchester) 
Mass., March L2, L812 ; graduated at the Boston 
High School ; learned the trade of watch-making. 
lie was of an inventive genius, and while working in 
a candle manufactory, invented the endless wick. 
This appears to have been bis first important inven- 
tion; but other- — some of them of great value — fol- 
lowed. He went to England for* the purpose, it is 
said, of introducing his inventions into that country. 
He got into business bj establishing himself in Lon- 
don as a civil engineer, having with him for some 
time bis nephew, Stephen Samuel Davis. For a quar- 
ter of a centurj or more be was constantly occupied 
in inventing and introducing improved machinery. 

Some oi* the facts here stated have been gathered 
from Drake's Dictionary of American Biographj ; 
and in order to sho"w something of the character and 
extent of Mr. Tuck's inventions, I quote from that 
work the following statement : 

* Among the fifty-five patent- taken by him in dif- 
ferent countries, are those for a candle machine. 
wrought-iron and bitumen gas and water pipes, a 
ventilating machine, a dredging machine, a rotary 
engine, a new system of breakwater for harbors, and 



\\1> mi- DKS< END w i 111 

his steamn nginc pa - the most profitable <•!* his 

inventions. II established, after mover- 

ming prejudice, A .. the eompan) t«» la\ the first 
submarine electric-cable in 1848 19, between Dover 
and Calais, but was robbed "t his interests in it bj 
tho8c whom he had interested in and assisted in plan- 
ning thai it undertaking. Bis plans and improve- 
ments for i itine the 9 ( anal were taken l>\ 

* 

the contractors; l>ut illness compelled him to abandon 
further connection with the undertaking.* 1 

^l r. Tuck afterward returned t < » tin- United Stat< 
having accumulated a large amount of property, the 
result of his inventive talent, made effective l>\ clo 
application, ind much hard Work : though 

the j>r<»tit-> from Bomeofhis inventions had gone more 
largely to others than t<> himself. < >n his arrival, find- 
ing m brother and Bister who had formerly been pros- 
perous, thru much reduced in their circumstan< es, he 

aerously contributed to their relief. Il« resided ;it 
Williamsburg, V V.. doing business in N< m fork 
city, where he encraffed somewhat largely in real estate 
transactions. He also took some risks in mining 

■<-k and -<'int' other uncertain business, and partly, 
it is -aid, through his partner (not his nephew) lost 
most of his property . He had suffered from a lame 
g from early life, and that eventually caused his 
death, which occurred at Williamsburg, April 1". 
1 ^7 

Mr. Tuck was a smart, active and very worthy man. 
and he had shown bis kindness of heart by the aid he 
_ vi in his prosperity to his relatives who were in 
adversity.

124 EARLY HOMESTEADS OF THE Tl < k>. 

kinsman Samuel Sberborn, who kept on the premises a public 
house, or ordinary, till he was sent in command of a company 
of soldiers againsl the eastern [ndians, by whom he was killed 
;ii Macquoit, Me., on the lth of August, 1691. Alter his 
death the ordinary was kept by Love Sherborn, his widow. 

Edward Tuck, of the second generation, owned a dwelling 
house, as appears from the inventory of bis estate in ld."»:5. 
His widow, a year or two afterward, was married to James 
Wall, and her son, .John Tuck, then a child, doubtless lived 

with her : and as her husband died in L659, when her son was 

about seven years old, leaving to her and his two daughters by 
her his dwelling house, there can be Little doubt that the son con- 
tinued to have hi~ home with her and her daughters (except, 
perhaps, during his apprenticeship) till his own marriage in 
1678. 

When or how the tract of land long known as the 'luck place, 

a part of which is now (1877) frequently called the Tuck lot, 

came into hi- possession, has not been satisfactorily determined. 
This tract of seventy-two acres, is nearly half a mile north 
of the homestead of Robert Tuck, and lies on the westerly 
side of the N country road." between the homestead of Christo- 
pher G. Toppan on the south, and land of the Eastern Rail- 
road, on which the depot Btands, on the north. A lai 
portion of this tract — including all the frontage — is owned by 
Mr. Joseph Ballard, of Boston, Mass., and has been his sum- 
mer residence for many rears. 

On this tract Lived Dea. John Tuck, and here were born 
some, and probably all of his children. This estate was also 
the residence of his son, Dea. Jonathan Tuck, while Edward, 
his eldest son settled in Kensington ; and .John, the youngest, 
entered the ministry and became the first pastor of the church 
on the Ides of Shoals. 

lhre also lived two of Dea. Jonathan Tuck's sons, John the 
eldest, and Jonathan the youngest, both dwelling in their fa- 
ther's house. John died in 1 7 ( J 2 . but many years before his 
death another house had keen built on the estate for his son 
John (No. 68), near the place on which Mr. Ballard's stable 
now stands, while the old house was located near the southeast 
corner of the garden. Benjamin, also, Dea. Tuck's second son. 
probably lived on the homestead a few- years, while Samuel, 
next in order, settled in Kensington, where his great-grandson, 
Charles E. Tuck, now lives.
